Families Flock to U.S. For Medical Pot for Children
Hundreds of families throughout the world have been drawn to Colorado to seek medical marijuana treatment for their children’s ailments. These parents and their children, dubbed “international medical marijuana refugees,” travel thousands of miles in an attempt to procure what they say are life-saving elements, the Guardian reported Monday.
“We’re not going to choose the option of being criminals with this in Ireland,” Yvonne Cahalane, a young mother who relocated from Ireland to Colorado on a one year visa with her two sons to seek treatment for her youngest boy, told the Guardian. Her two-year-old son has a rare form of epilepsy that was causing him to have near-constant seizures, and since seeking treatment in Colorado he hasn’t had a seizure in months. “We don’t want to do things illegally, and we don’t want to do it without a doctor.
Breeding technique allows farmers to conventionally breed plants based on genetic markers; GMOs are unnecessary, costly, dangerous and now obsolete
Advances in conventional breeding techniques have now rendered genetic engineering obsolete, according to a report authored by independent scientist Benno Vogel and published by Greenpeace. Indeed, the conventional breeding technique known as marker-assisted selection (MAS) allows farmers to rapidly develop new strains of important crops, without the high costs or dangers of genetic engineering.
Genetic engineering, which produces genetically modified organisms (GMOs), consists of using biotechnology techniques to alter the DNA of organisms. In contrast, MAS uses biotechnology only to identify genetic markers linked to traits that farmers find desirable, such as pest or drought resistance. Armed with this more specific information about a plant’s genetics, farmers are able to use conventional breeding techniques to produce new strains much more rapidly — and much more quickly and effectively than can be delivered by genetic engineering.
Anti-fluoride activists in New Zealand are routinely silenced by a corrupt government
The addition of fluoride to drinking water has become a hot topic, with numerous activist groups lobbying governments across the world to stop adding the harmful chemical to drinking water. For decades, governments have been claiming that the fluoridation of water is a safe and effective method of protecting teeth from decay – but according to Global Research this is in fact a lie.
Fluoridation is not actually essential for good health or good for protecting teeth – but it is poisonous. Consuming excess amounts of fluoride may increase your risk for 23 different types of cancer, lower the IQ of your children and increase oxidative stress throughout your body. As reported by Natural News, research by the World Health Organization has found that Americans living in areas with “optimal” water fluoridation have an increased risk of cancer.
As reported by Fluoride Alert, the ingestion of fluoride also has direct effects on the brain that might impair intelligence by effecting learning and memory capacity, as proven by more than 40 different animal studies.
Chernobyl, genetic damage, and the UK nuclear bomb tests - justice at last?
Britain’s nuclear bomb test veterans suffered severe genetic damage from radiation, writes Chris Busby, and their case for compensation is being heard in the High Court today. Key to their case is evidence of similar damage inflicted on in utero babies exposed to radiation from the Chernobyl disaster, and how the dreadful health impacts of radiation cascade down to future generations.
The world has had 30 years to assess the consequences for life on Earth of the disaster at Chernobyl. This is about the same period during which I have studied the effects of radioactive pollution on the planet.
Avoid these foods from China: they are filled with plastic, pesticides and cancer-causing chemicals
Generally speaking, quality control and employee health are not issues that Chinese industry or the Chinese government are overly concerned about, especially in comparison to U.S. and European standards. But there are some foods and products you should definitely avoid completely if they are produced by the Asian giant.
That said, a lot of food consumed throughout North America and Europe is nevertheless imported from China, but that comes at an additional cost over and above the price on the products. The food awareness site, Why Dont You Try This, reported that some “food” companies in China were mass-producing fake rice made from plastic, which of course can cause serious digestive issues (where is our Federal Trade Commission, by the way?), and may even be fatal if consumed daily.
The site also reported on 10 other foods made in China, which have serious contamination and health problems, and should be avoided at all times:
Why “Alternative” Media is the New Mainstream
Let’s face it, the mainstream media, like CNN, Fox News etc. are great at reporting on the surface understandings of surface issues; car accidents and plane crashes, shootings and robberies; as well as reinforcing why our latest foreign war is good/necessary/the only way to peace and security. But if you really want to investigate and comprehend what is actually going on in the world, and why, you have to go past the mainstream.
Just look at the countless global events being reported by the underground news and compare it to the selective, politically-biased fear-fare of the mainstream; there is little journalistic integrity on display in the mainstream media, just the regurgitation of B.S. And lots of it. Even the surface events reported in the mainstream are often filtered, distorted and even blatantly constructed by media corporations that conceal their corporate and political alliances behind the guise of “news.
The Smokescreen of Symbology
It’s hard yet not hard to imagine how humanity has embraced religion and all its entrapments. Induced external belief systems that seem to take into account our innate hunger for spirituality abound on our co-opted, abducted planet. And underlying almost every religion are notions of symbolic worship in some form. This is a whole study in itself but nevertheless quite curious, yet understandably an easy focal point. And it’s been there since time immemorial.
Is there an ultimate reason or purpose for this?
It’s just amazing how wrong humanity gets it. Whether these ongoing feudalistic wars for whatever carrot of power, mass illusions dangled in humanity’s face, or the overarching schemes of false scarcity and the massively debilitating fear of death, humanity, you have to admit, has a propensity for being duped.
I’ve been duped. You’ve been duped. The bullshit almost exceeds comprehension. At least for us, the objects of it. Until we wake up to it.
GE Mosquitoes? Tell FDA NO!
Imagine a company releasing millions of experimental, genetically engineered, biting insects into a populated island environment. Sounds like the plot to a new Jurassic Park, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, this plot is very real, and it will happen unless we stop it.
Our environment should not be a testing ground for experimental genetically engineered (GE) mosquitoes. But if approved, millions of genetically engineered mosquitoes could be released into the Florida Keys, for the first time in the U.S.
From the Cross to the Phone Tower – A Brief History of Mind Control
For a long time now, some force alien to the spiritual and humanistic evolution of humanity has been working hard to subvert, and then reverse, the true awakening of human consciousness.
This force, working with both words and symbols, has effectively side-tracked humanity for its own ends. Erecting countless barriers on the path that leads to conscious awareness.
Quite a feat! Especially when one considers that, somewhere within, all of us are primed to react positively to love, joy, creativity and exploration of the unknown.
Any force or entity intending to squash that lot must surely have access to some pretty advanced insights. Insights into just where to find the potential fissures in our ‘state of wholeness’. And then, to know exactly what to do to ensure that they are prized open and made extremely difficult to close again!
We recognize how subliminal advertising has the power to direct the subconscious element of the human brain to react in ways that are advantageous to those doing the advertising; but typically disadvantageous to those impulsively caught by the irrational desire to buy whatever it is that is being advertised.
Imagery, especially that dressed with an emotional content, has the power to become transfixed in the neocortex. Producing a stream of irrational thoughts that, if allowed to prevail, lead the individual into a prison of his or her own making.
